23 SES 03 A, Religion and Education II
This contribution looks at the relationship between the development of church-state relations in post-communist Romania and its impact on higher education. A survey of the rapprochement between higher education and religious actors serves as a background in the exploration of two main issues. First, instances of systematic religious discrimination in Romanian higher education. Secondly, the growth of academic theology over the past 20 years, particularly as an essential arm of (some) churches' involvement in public life. In this second section, the contribution examines questions such as the organization of academic theology, the relationship between the churches and faculties of theology, the relations between academic theology and religious education in primary and secondary schools. A number of proposals are offered on how universities could better cope with religious diversity and specific church-state issues; as well as with respect to the (re)organization of academic theology in this country.
